Intel Kaby Lake 7000 series CPUs Benchmarked

Everyone Gamers waiting for the next gen Kaby Lake series CPUs might be a little disappointed today as reviews and benchmarks surface from major news outlets.

Techpowerup has done a very thorough test of the flagship 7700K against the current gen Skylake 6700K with a large number of popular games and the results are fairly unanimous.  The good news is, if you have a Skylake CPU (or even a Ivy Bridge / Haswell CPU) there’s no reason to upgrade. The bad news, if you’ve been dying to upgrade  your PC and just holding out for the next big generational performance boost, this isn’t it.

Full credit to techpowerup for the benchmarks below, to read their full article visit

So if it’s time to upgrade your gaming PC maybe you should jump on the current gen before it’s all gone and dodge the new generation premium pricing of Kaby Lake motherboards and CPUs? Visit today to get started. Don’t worry, if your still keen for Kaby Lake systems they are on the way too, keep an eye on our website for updates in the coming days.

This week @ Evatech, Liquid Cooled GPUs, Brushed Aluminium, SLI & TridentX RAM

As we creep up to Christmas the orders just start flooding in! While a lot of the orders are pretty similar, well rounded, economical, good value for money custom PC builds, there are always a few that make even our tech team to assemble these things all day every day, stop and snap a photo.

Without further ado, here is just a small sampling of some of the bests this week to give a few ideas for your next custom gaming PC.

Why liquid cool your CPU when you can liquid cool your GPU? The Seahawk from MSI is co-engineered with Corsiar using their tried and true H55 pump and radiator, prefixed to the MSI PCB and encased in a blower air cooler for the VRM heatsinks.


Blue RAM, Blue LED CPU Cooler and Blue PSU Cabling coming together nicely on a matt black MSI motherboard and glossy white NZXT case.


Love them or hate them, the Steamcastle from Deepcool is definitely different. They might be on their way out and stock is getting hard to come by, so this might very well be one of the last we build.

right-side-panel-down-Steamcastle Red

G.Skill’s black and white TidentX DDR4 memory never fails to look pretty in any build, no sharp contrasting colors, just sleek glossy and understated while still being sharp and most importantly, a rock solid performer.


With a customer base so geared towards gaming, the number of SLI builds we get it’s a lot higher than you might guess. It’s by no means cheap, and a single card is always more cost effective, but if you need ALL the power you can get, it’s always an option.


If you your looking for a premium quality chassis, something that just screams ‘premium’ at a glance, InWin’s brushed metal and tempered glass 900 series are tough to beat.


Inspired? Head on over to our custom PC builder page today and checkout your options! You don’t even need to know anything about computers, let our built in error checking & warning system look after you and checkout our game database to help you tailor your performance to the types of games you play! Instant quotes, easy online ordering, 100% custom computers delivered nation wide!

Evatech Moving to a 4x Larger Space in Oakleigh South

When & Why?

With our rapidly expanding customer base it’s come time to expand to make sure we can we can keep up with demand and not compromise our level of quality and customer service! Starting next week we’ll have all hands on deck to make sure the move is as smooth as possible and if all goes to plan, be up and running at our new location by Thursday with little to no disruption to customers, local or online.

If you’re a local, don’t worry, we’re not moving far.

Our new address is only 5 minutes away from our previous store at 1/382 Huntingdale Road in Oakleigh South.Evatech's New Melbourne Address


If you’re an online customer, don’t worry, this doesn’t change anything.

We will still have our same great customer service, product range, quality control and delivery times. In fact our catalog will probably grow, our stock on hand will be even better and our delivery times ever faster!

Thinking about placing an order? Go for it. There will be no delays.

We’ve got it all taken care of,  months careful planning has gone in to devising a move that causes the absolute minimum impact to customers. Our store may be closed for a day as we make the final transition but online orders are processed at our distribution facility and will be un-effected.

Closures during the moving period.

We run a tight ship, and although it’s a huge move, the plan is to only be closed for a single business day. At this point in the time the scheduled closer date is Wednesday the 11th of OCT but if plans change we’ll let everyone know with a banner on our website ASAP.

Nvidia GTX 1080 TI Rumors Surface [12GB / 3328 Cores / 250w TDP]

With a GTX 1080 TI GPU from Nvidia all but inevitable, rumors have been swirling around the internet since the launch of the GTX 1080 back in June as to the specs and release date.

Sweclockers reported earlier this week that leaks from a Chinese forum known to be reliable from past releases detailed the specifications of the card and mentioned a release is slated for January 2017.

Bare in mind these are still unofficial, pricing is unknown and release dates are uncertain. Anything could change between now and the release of the the GTX 1080 TI, but from what we can see, these specifications would make a lot of sense.

Founders editions cards are likely to be all that’s available with the first shipment or two out of Nvidia but we expect all the usual suspects (Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, EVGA etc) to bring factory overclocked non-reference editions to market shortly there after.

Stay tuned to Evatech for more details as they arise.

Deus Ex : Mankind Divided

Released : 24th AUG (CUSTOMIZE)

One of the best critically reviewed games to be released in recent memory, the cyberpunk action stealth single player RPG has been given 8’s and 9’s out of 10 from almost every major gaming review media outlet.

Mafia III

Release : 8th OCT (CUSTOMIZE)

Developed by Hanger 13 and published by 2K games Mafia 3 is only a month away and has been one of the most anticipated titles of the year. Set in mob run 1968 New Orleans the plot follows Vietnam war vet, Anti-hero Lincoln Clay on a brutal revenge tale filled with ‘Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving’ according to it’s Steam store page.

Battlefield 1

Release : 21st OCT (CUSTOMIZE)

PC game series don’t get much bigger than Battlefield with some of the highest online player counts and longest lasting communities of any online shooter, consistently, since the release of the Battlefield 1942 in 2002.

Battlefield 1 is the first of the the series to be during WW1, with the same massive environment, high player count, class based shooter mechanics the series has built it’s name on, swapping out it’s sub machine guns and attack helicopters for bayonet charges, mustard gas and biplanes.

Honorable mentions,

Forza Horizon 3 lands September 27 for racing fans, set in an open world rendition of Australia and featuring as many as 350 different vehicles and 12 player free roam multiplayer.

Gears of War 4 drops on October 11 (Windows 10 Exclusive). As long as it’s a decent port, it’s sure to a winner for fans of the franchise.

Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, aka COD in space is set for release on November 4th, with zero-G lasers and grappling guns as Call of Duty’s answer to Battlefield’s step back to the 1910’s.

Dishonored 2, (November 11th) a sequel to the critically acclaimed first release back in 2012 drops the old hero Corvo along with the new female playable character Emily in a whole new city, this time loosely modeled after Spain and the south of France.

Watch Dogs 2, (November 15th). The original had soo much promise but fell short in a lot of ways, with middling reviews across the board. Lets hope Ubisoft can build upon what made the original unique while ironing out the bugs and addressing criticisms of the first game at the same time.

Christmas is upon us – less than 123 days left!

Ho-ho-ho! … What, too soon?
